Here’s the thing, Cosmo Girls: You can follow a 20-step skincare routine with the most luxurious and expensive products, but you may still have a hard time getting glowing skin if you don’t use sun protection. When your skin is exposed to UV rays, it may lead to premature skin aging and lasting damage. Dark spots and fine lines can still appear if you neglect to apply sunscreen on your face (and body).
BTW, being indoors doesn’t necessarily exempt you from applying sunscreen. UV rays can still penetrate through windows and damage your complexion. And even if you don’t work under natural light, the blue light coming from your computer screens can lead to dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
That said, you should always keep your skin protected with face sunscreens. If you’re worried about the sticky finish most sun care products come with, we found ones you should definitely try! These have lightweight formulas that won't feel greasy on the skin. Check out our recommendations here:
Biore UV Covering Base SPF50 - Bright Up
This one's a multitasker: It's a sweat-resistant sunscreen and primer in one! If you wear this on days you're outdoors, you'll be impressed by how this sunscreen helps prevent your makeup from wearing off. Even if you have a face shield and mask on, your complexion will still look fresh and shine-free!
Cetaphil Sun Light Gel SPF50
If you don't want your SPF to feel like it's just sitting on top of your face, go for a gel formula. Your skin will absorb it faster, plus, its ~cooling~ effect is a need for our humid weather. This lightweight sunscreen from Cetaphil is also fragrance- and paraben-free, so it's suitable for even the most sensitive complexions.
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Complete UV Waterlight Lotion SPF50 PA+++
This sunscreen may be ultra-lightweight, but it effectively shields your complexion from UV rays and neutralizes free radical damage. You'll love its non-oily silky smooth finish which makes it a dewy base for makeup. You can wear it alone if you prefer a more radiant glow that never looks too shiny.
NIVEA Sun UV Face BB Cream
Skip the heavy foundation and go for this tinted sunscreen if you want to look ~fresh lang~ for your meetings or errands. It's easy to apply and blend with your fingers, and it feels so lightweight on the skin, you’ll forget you’re wearing any makeup.
Dermaction Plus by Watsons Advanced SPF40 PA+++ Water Drop Cream Gel
Not only does this product offer protection from UV rays and high Energy Visible Light, but it also helps keep your skin hydrated and soft. The lightweight cream also has a cooling effect—perfect on hot days!
